We are going to discuss a paper about axial patterning in Trichechus this week.
We will have the next “EvoDevo Journal Club” again on Thursday 12th at 14.15 in room 3513 (! new room !). This week we are going to discuss a paper of Chartier et al. about floral morphospace.
For this week's journal club, we have a paper on robustly estimating microbial diversity from NGS data, a topic that is probably relevant for a lot of us.
This week we’ll move away from the opisthokonts, and will talk about a group of rhizarian parasites; the phytomyxids.
At the parasite journal club this week we will try again to discuss the myxozoans, a weird group of parasites within the opisthokonts. They are a strange group of microscopic sized metazoans related to the Cnidaria, and are found in aquatic habitats where they act as parasites of fish, amphibians, reptiles and rarely invertebrates.
The paper we will discuss on Thursday will be presented by Håvard.

This Thursday (6th of November) we will talk more about Illumina sequencing. The paper from last time that compares Illumina with Ion Torrent (Salipante et al. 2014) will be discussed this week. We also want to discuss a paper that have used the Illumina platform to look at microbial community composition and diversity (Sinclair et al. 2014).
This Friday we will discuss this review paper about the fascinating and numerous microsporidian parasites.
